A strong and very warm ridge of high pressure is building into the Great Lakes and northeastern United States. We are going to be entering an unseasonably warm stretch of weather that will last all week long and perhaps even into early next week. The chance of much needed precipitation is low this week because we lack a significant forcing mechanism (front or low pressure system), but with the high heat on a few days, an isolated shower or storm is possible, but not likely. Daytime highs this week will be around 10 degrees above average.
Any clouds this evening will fade away into the early overnight and I expect mainly clear skies to persist. Fog will develop after around 1-2am and could be dense in spots. Overnight lows will range from the mid and upper 50s to the low 60s.
Fog will evaporate through the morning Tuesday and we’ll be left to bake under the late-summer sunshine through the afternoon. Highs Tuesday will be in the mid 80s. Clear skies are expected again Tuesday night with lows in the mid and upper 50s to low 60s.
The hottest day this week should be Wednesday. The ridge of high pressure will crest right over top of the area. I see a very weak signal that could possibly touch off an isolated shower/storm Wednesday, but for now I am keeping us mostly, if not completely, dry. Overnight lows will be in the mid 60s.
Thursday will remain hot and mostly dry. As mentioned above, the relative lack of any significant disturbances passing through the area will keep our precipitation chances very low. Highs will be around 84. Friday remains very warm with highs in the low to mid 80s.
The upcoming Labor Day weekend looks to remain dry as well. Saturday, Sunday and even Labor Day are shaping up to be partly cloudy to sunny and very warm. Highs through this upcoming weekend may remain 10-15 degrees above average.
